Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Business seats were excellent"
Cons: "All was good!"
Cons: "Crew woke me up from deep sleep to raise seatback for meal service. Sleep versus food?? Should prioritise sleep every time on night flights."
Pros: "Service was great especially the food"
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Very attentive and responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Space was too tight"
Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"

Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "Liked almost everything: newspapers, menu card, mini-toiletries bag, hot towel, food choice, ice cream, entertainment options, head sets provided (better quality than US airlines), lavatories kept clean and with less waiting time, number and friendliness of flight staff."

Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "Overall service, good leg space."
Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."
Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."

Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
Cons: "The food was very poor indeed, the entertainment system was not working in my seat or the seat behind, I had to move to another seat"
Pros: "I love flying by singapore airlines! Firstly because its direct flight from home plus service on sq is always impeccable. Plus i can easily order a singapore sling and a campari spritz, which is so nice while watching a movie :)"
Cons: "I didnt really like the food this time and entertainment on the way back was so sad! No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up. Coz i was trying to sleep so i dont get jetlagged back in sg. Which i did unfortunately :( not jetlag when i arrived in rome though :)"
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Pros: "The SIA crew is the most gentle and careful I have ever encountered."
Cons: "The food is below average. The quantity is OK but the choices/taste in not matching the best airlines."
Pros: "Staff on board were lovely."
Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."
Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."
Pros: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Pros: "Consistently good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system sometimes froze, didn't remember where I was in the movie."
Pros: "Clean ,on time"
Cons: "The movies were not updated"
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic. Not fresh. For 16 hours flight only two meals were served and no snacks were provided"
Pros: "We love travelling Singapore Airlines and always try to travel with them if we can"
Pros: "Customer service , crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was terrible out of MEL.. Didn't have any choice at all.. Tasteless , should improve"

Pros: "Heavenly for an airplane ride!"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "Crew is meek and doesn’t smile or try very hard. Flight was FULL of nasty Russian tourists. Miserable experience"
Pros: "Qatar personal ground services they did the best they could in a difficult environment such as GVA airport. Cabin Crew FABULOUS Quality of space GOOD Food EXCELLENT Looking forward in flying again with QATAR AIRWAYS Thanks Tony Manias"
Cons: "Although for some technical reasons the flight was considerably delayed, there was no action taken either by Qatar Airways or Geneva airport authorities to make the waiting more confortable!! The passengers of economy class and business class were all stacked in the same space (it looked more of a hangar...) Access to this space was only possible by stairs (No elevator - No escalator !!) No drinks offered, not enough chairs to sit and wait......etc The main blame is to put on Geneva Airport Authorities. This airport is a total mess From the moment one arrives at the airport area (access - parking - ..) till the moment of boarding... It should be boycotted by major and quality companies such as Qatar Airways and many others."
Pros: "Good, drinks, service and entertainment system."
Pros: "Although we flew economy, we received excellent service from an attendant from the Philippines."
Cons: "We have no complaints."
Pros: "i do like service in plane and at the counter no problem with baggage.all ok.thank for good service.sincerly vladimir hodan"

Pros: "Stopover in Doha fun. The people are so friendly."
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best in middle East"
Cons: "Crew nice alway take care customer"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Space, food, service, handling"

Pros: "The flight attendants was nicer on this flight then the US to Doha flight"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Pros: "Could not be more impressed with the airline, absolutely would recommend to anyone!"
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"
Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and good service"
Pros: "Good service from cabin crew"
Cons: "Seat is quite small compared to other flight"
Cons: "Norhing really"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation. No apology. Stuck in transit with nothing to do. Not impressed at all. Boarding also delayed. Food on this flight was very poor."
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Nice and spacious aircraft."
Cons: "Some confusion on Hindu meal and vegetarian meals."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."
Pros: "Qatar airlines was awesome! Comfy seat, great headrest, lots of entertainment options and decent food all on a very short flight. Would definitely fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Quick boarding/ friendly ground staff as well as the cabin crew! Food was great(even though I don't normally eat plane food) but I enjoyed their meals! Plenty of leg room with the seat compared to other airlines I have flown with! Free wifi on certain planes(even though for 15 mins, better than nothing!)"
Cons: "Could have a bit more choice of movies but wasn't bad"
Pros: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."
Cons: "I was hoping to replace worldmate with you application. you got it wrong. I travelled from Doha to Guanzhou, Bangkok and back to Doha. I don't even know where Sohag is!!!!! Qatar airways did a perfect job as usual."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."

Cons: "Didn't enjoy the options of food"
Pros: "Service in airplane"
Pros: "The staff were great but couldn't rectify the entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment as the movie wouldn't play or watch anything else."
Pros: "I really love Thai Air business class internal flights. Great seat layout like the long haul privacy. Thai Air staff always excellent and even on this 70 min flight they serve a hot Thai meal rather than cop out with sarnies. Also was llucky on the flight down to HKt was on a brand new Dreamliner, I think they were testing. Wow! Multi coloured calming lighting and no window blinds ! 5heh work electinically like polarised glasses! What next! Highly recommend Thai Air for business class."

Cons: "That Kayak did not inform me when bookinhg that the seats they were selling me had to be at the very back of the plane Last time I will ever use Kayak"
Pros: "I like that I brought my noise cancelling headphones. Screaming babies are nobodies fault but careful preparation is helpful."
Pros: "Whole package very good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The included extras and polite staff."
Cons: "When the passenger in the seat in front of me reclined her seat it was almost impossible to keep watching the movie which while sar, shows as mainly a black screen and even changing the angle didn't assist"
Pros: "Nice Big plane"
Cons: "There was delay leaving kathamandu for no reason. I also asked coffee from the senior purser (dressed suggested that she was) and she took my mug and never came back."
Pros: "Overall flight experience is good. Wish they had more veggie options in Business class"
Cons: "Too much Thai. They switch off the entertianment 30 min before and then its all about thailand.."
Cons: "We had two drunks behind us constantly kicking our seats. There was three free seats in front of us, we asked to move there but we were told that those seats were for crew in case of turbulence. It's the first time I hear this. Half way through they allowed us to move for those seats."
Pros: "Flight staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Long wait at checkout in. Slow."
Pros: "شكرًا لكم كانت رحله جميله في الوقت المحدد والمعامله الطيبه التي وجدتها من بوكيت الى العاصمة بانكوك شكرًا لكم مرة ثانيه"

Cons: "decor inside plane looked a little dated"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Pros: "Liked their food, movies."
Cons: "I didnt like the way they were late each time, boarding gates were such a mess and they never started on time, seats were not as good as I thought they would be."
Cons: "Chiang Mai lounge worn-out. Staff nonexistent. No alcohol. Snacks economy quality.Delay 30 minutes, no explanation given. No alcohol served on domestic flights in business? Seriously? Meal no choice. Entertainment nonexistent. Airshow only. The seats look like a 70s Sci Fi B movie set. In recline I kept kicking the seat in front of me. This was all on a one hour and ten minute flight. I'll never fly them long haul."

Cons: "The plane was about 20-30 minutes late taking off. Fortunately, I still made my connecting flight."

Pros: "In an exit row seat, so plenty of space and the crew were very friendly."
Pros: "did not use the entertainment, rested instead. Food was good. Only thing I would say -- they should not rush meals too much -- be a little more peaceful about it after they serve so we can enjoy properly. Crew are very good and polite. Seats are comfortable. Plane could be a little warmer. Always need to use a blanket. Wait too long in Bangkok - wish it were shorter."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, comfy, and relaxing. The chairs have everything you need with two pockets, USB, power outlet, and stereo headphone jacks (it looks like the old school dual mono with two prongs but just plug into the right one for stereo). The entertainment was superb with very recent films (although they were censored which sucks) and a responsive unit and nice remote."
Cons: "The only thing that was lame was the food. Absolutely terrible. You don't have many options at 40,000 ft but be prepared for sub dollar store quality. At least the booze was free."
Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "seats are getting older."
Pros: "Everything was fine once I was on the plane."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "New A350 aircraft"

Cons: "Phuket airport is disorganized, the lounge is crowded wifi did not work"
Cons: "Food quality"

Pros: "Staff were superb from check in to landing. Service from MAN to HKG was impeccable."
Cons: "Seat was a touch faulty"
Cons: "Gate staff was not patient and friendly. No advanced notification before flight cancellation. Poor communication after flight cancellation. No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Efficiency of Operations, efficiency of service and attitude to pleasing customers, great choice of movies, excellent aircraft"
Cons: "For two hours flight food was adequate"
Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "The bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cathay not the "cut above" it once was."
Pros: "I did get an upgrade and saw a pleasant movie"
Cons: "There were no immigration forms on board. When I asked for one, the hostess said there had been an announcent Mayybe there was one in mandarin but certainly not in english. A senior hostess cam later to apologize zaying the reason was that there were new forns since 1 Dec when leaving the plane, everyone was given old forms! All very unptofessional..."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Poor food and very basic (old movies) entertainment - always delayed"
Pros: "Food better than qantas Good leg room Very attentive attendants Good range of movies"
Cons: "It was pretty good for the price"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and courteous throughout. Food was not bad, but not excellent either, just airline food."

Pros: "Flight was delayed Made connection just in time"
Pros: "that is great flight. I'm very with fight"
Cons: "tiket issuing time some has mistake than we want to change very big problem, that take a hour and hour."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."
Pros: "Very clean everyone was nice, easy getting on and off flight"
Cons: "Movie and tv selection pretty bad! And seats not comfortable compared to the longer Cathay Pacific flight I had just taken."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "Great food, free, and also free snacks, lovely staff, extra pillows and blankets provided. Roomy, loved it, plan to use then again !"
Pros: "A free upgrade to premium economy - I think the flight was over booked."
Pros: "Usual Cathay high standards - which is what one expects."
Cons: "Older A330 for short haul so not lie flat seats. Older IFE. Food, oddly, not great today (unusual for Cathay)."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific forgot to send paperwork for departure which resulted in 1 hour delay and then given us furthest possible gate on arrival in HK"
Pros: "Crews were respectful."
Pros: "Despite no preferred aisle seat and a last minute seat swap, the flight was comfortable enough to get some sleep. Enough space and a good temperature."
Cons: "An eye mask would help block the constantly flashing screens of the surrounding seats. Staff almost made an effort to meet a couple of simple requests but were obviously busy with other priorities. Food wasn't bad."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean toilets, great service"
Cons: "Entertainment system is a little bit outdated. Not as good as was on the other flight where you can search for movies by keyword."
Pros: "I managed to miss my flight in Hong Kong (my mistake) and Cathay managed to get me onto the next flight. Thanks Cathay!"
Cons: "Plane got delayed for an hour, WITHOUT any air conditioning. I forgot what the captain said about the HKG airport not capable of providing air conditioning to the plane. Anyway, I began sweating after 10 mins, and it sucks."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific provided excellent service."
Pros: "Great seat. Flew from Hong Kong to Manchester and had a good 7 hour sleep. Food, especially breakfast was amazing with a dim sum selection. Crew was fantastic as always."
Cons: "Dinner however was a little lackluster with a prawn and crab meat stir fry which was a little bland."
Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."
Pros: "Seated 19K in business class on the 777 from Manchester. Crew was fantastic and responded quickly and enthusiastically. Breakfast muesli was really good"
Cons: "Food could be better. Lamp rump steak cooked well but potato on the side not washed properly. Breakfast option not appetizing"
Pros: "More space between seats"
Cons: "Little to no vegetarian option"
Pros: "Access to Cathay lounge. Went to the Wing noodle bar and coffee loft. Had a good bite to eat before boarding flight running 15 mins late. My request to have my meal service delayed was welcomed by staf."
Cons: "None experienced"
Pros: "The check in staff were only doing their job, by insisting that I had an onward ticket before they checked me in, as per Thai immigration ruling. Otherwise, if I did not have an onward ticket, they stated they could not check me in, and would refund my ticket. The problem is there are many ways of travelling out of Thailand, and I frequently visit Cambodia and Thailand via bus. How could I produce a bus ticket which I usually buy only a week before departure?"
Cons: "That was a bit of a rude shock, as I had never encountered such obstacles before, and most fortunately I did indeed have a reservation for a BKK-GVA ticket, or I would have been refused boarding. Apparently the Thai immigration authorities have a condition for Swiss citizens to possess an onward ticket before they can enter Thailand, but this is the first time an airline has applied this as strictly, and has been as insistent, as Cathay Pacific. I have been in & out of BKK hundreds of times, and this is the first time ever an airline has applied this rule to the letter. So, bottom line, never again will I fly Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Great crew, quick boarding"
Pros: "I do however appreciate that the plane did wait for us"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and although my connecting flight did wait this was only because a large number of other people on that flight where not only on my flight but where coming in from other flights as well. this seems like really poor management and practice"
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful.We spilled our water on the seat and they quickly helped us to clean it up without any fuss or accusation."
Cons: "The food did not smell delicious. My son was already feeling quite ill from the previous trip and could not eat."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The food was disappointing. The standard was too low for Cathay."
Pros: "Attitude and service levels of the flight attendants was the best I have encountered for a while"
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Cons: "I personally don't like how you can't choose seats until check in. Although the food menu states that noodles and snacks were available upon request, we were turned down several times when we requested. Food served, especially main entree, were barely edible. It was probably the worst airline food I've ever had, and I travel very frequently. When we arrived back at JFK from our trip, it took over 2 hours for our luggage to arrive at baggage claim."
Pros: "All but did not eat"
Pros: "most of the crew was fine but..."
Cons: "one crazy crew member started banging on the restroom door and would not stop until I opened the door. ... simply because the pilot was telling us the weather in HK. So rude. Will definitely select another airline next time."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was polite and helpful throughout my flights. The food was good, tasty and hot! Had some newer movies available."
Pros: "Plane landed early"
Cons: "Old plane and old seats."
Pros: "many choices of movies, tv and music program. great service on board"
Cons: "delay for one and a half hours"
Pros: "Every thing was ok but no snack"
Cons: "Water and soft drink are important for every one shold serve every half an hour"
Pros: "Everything went very well with the very good service of Cathy Pacific."
Cons: "Maybe a map of document control areas."
Cons: "Seat can not be reclined, where it makes you slouch, very uncomfortable position. Meal time is rather odd, should be re schedule since we depart on early morning hour."
Pros: "Great service, very polite and concerned with the passenger's well being."
Cons: "Nothing needed to be changed. It was a good flight and I had a good experience."
Pros: "Crew Service and Leg space is great. Automatic check-in station is simple and easy to operate, speeds up the queue for checking-in and luggage drop."
Cons: "Seat has no recline option, only movable part is the base of seat, back support recline is not available, thus making it impossible to rest. Food was served cold, CX used to be much better at food handling, cold omelette and soggy bacon is definitely not appetizing even for a hungry morning flight. Entertainment is ok, nice options, but LCD screen is getting old and blurry, rather not strain my eyes to try watch anything on it."
Pros: "The crew did fine and the food was OK."
Cons: "There was almost no information about what was happening with the delays. You need to do a better job of disseminating information. The food voucher was nice but it was all word of mouth among the passengers. To have a 5 hour delay is tough. You should have better charging facilities at your gates. You could only stand and charge and the plugs were all Hong Kong/English specific. Nothing universal about those plugs. I had to borrow an adapter to charge my laptop during the delay. The spicy fish dish tasted like it had been fouled during the delay. I like spicy fish generally but this tasted tainted."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew were very nice and supportive."
Cons: "Nothing to complain."
Pros: "Troy was very helpful and entertaining"
Cons: "No white wine"
Cons: "Seats not the comfortable. Small space. Took off late and crew made it seem that rebooking our connecting flight would be a piece of cake when in reality we had to wait in line for four hours before even getting to speak to someone about it."
Cons: "Late BA flight made sure I had to wait 7 hours to catch and EVA air flight. I want my money back. I paid 1000 to flight British Airways not to be crammed on a flight as a show away. Super uncomfortable seat on EVA and a terrible experience. I fell on the plane."
Pros: "The crew are always the bright spot on any BA flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system needs upgrading. Food just average. Seat comfort is better than before but still less comfortable than Asian carriers. Two drunken idiots spoiled a fair portion of the flight."
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars except for 12 hours out of 14, of howling baby which is obviously not down to the airline but pretty exhausting to survive (poor parents)!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 40 minutes"
Pros: "On time, smooth and comfortable flight. Crew very helpful"
Cons: "There wasn’t much not to like about this flight. All very good. But so short no entertainment really possible"
Cons: "The BA flights I flew on were not new. Lie flat seat is not Best in the class. The movie collection is not uptodate. British airways in flight service levels are relatively inferior quality. The cabin and toilets were not spick-and-span. Toilets were not kept clean from time to time. The toileterries provided are not high in desirability quotient and can be improved in at least one leg of the international flights."
Pros: "The staff where very good, was comfy for short trip"
Cons: "2hr 40min delay, and a very hectic and long boarding process"
Cons: "I always expect water to be handed out, but I guess this flight was too short so I had to ask for a cup of water. That's all. Not a big deal. They brought me water."
Pros: "Flight was good, delayed by 25minutes though,"
Pros: "Food good."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff due to customer replanting and hunt for their luggage. Noisy children throughout flight. Unable to nap due to noise."
Cons: "I missed it because our flight was delayed out of JFK."
Pros: "Quick and efficient. Very informative about delays."
Cons: "It was very cold! Too much air conditioning."
Pros: "We were given a snack & drinks. You checked my 2nd bag free which was FABULOUS so I didn't have to deal with gate checking when you asked for us to do that."
Cons: "Was seated in bulkhead & the media screen wouldn't stay facing me. What a pain. Ended up unable to watch it without holding it in place. Seat cushion was very flat & uncomfortable; head rest of poor design did not allow sleep."
Pros: "always friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The boarding in London. They did not call numbers or rows so people just squeezed...and pushed ... drinks If I sit on a window seat I sometimes do not notice the serving of liquids. I would appreciated it very much if they talk to me when they serve water and juice. Otherwise I get dehydrated. Happened last year on my flight back to the US, too.I had to get up and walk back to get water(2016). breakfast Breakfast used to be better with fresh fruits and cheese.and roll The pizzas are like cardboard, I do not care about. Other wise I am satisfied. Thanks"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was at least 15 years old and it did not work in my seat despite numerous attempts to reset. As someone who cannot sleep on flights I was very uncomfortable and annoyed that I had to sit through 12 hours of flying with nothing to watch or listen to."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "Thai airways much better"
Pros: "Having a little bit more room, footrest and legrest do really make a difference on the long haul flight. The little touches like being greeted with a glass of wine or water, having proper silverware with the main meal really mitigate the general misery of long haul flying. The main meal is really quite delicious as well. You also get provided with socks, toothbrush, mask and nice headphones."
Cons: "Honestly, the seats are really quite hard and could use a little more padding! They give you a little cushion which I ended up sitting on to relieve pressure on my tailbone. The coffee that came with the box lunch was fine but if you wanted cream you were out of luck. Instead a tiny amount of milk was provided. At least you got some caffeine!"
Pros: "It was replacement flight by Qatar Airways. I wish they would replace all BA flights."
Pros: "Heathrow T5 bag drop and terminal in general was great as usual."
Cons: "Iberia are a poor codeshare partner. Old plane, tacky interior, and just like BA they make it difficult to get even a glass of water without paying extra."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "A few peoples televisions, including my own, just stopped working midway through the flight. The crew didn't offer us much to drink (like they didn't walk around offering water enough). Also paid extra for seating which we did not get the seats I paid for pretty sure."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Waits, long wait for baggage, surly crew."
Pros: "Honestly nothing"
Cons: "The whole flight was disastrous and we Are old gold card holders"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The lady at check in was the most rude customer service I have ever had. There was confusion with flights and I was trying to check in well before time and she said no it's too late and walked off. I then saw her later at 8:50 (my flight was at 9:25) I said excuse me that was my flight and she goes I'm busy trying to fuel and stormed off. The ladies at the airport tried to help me. So now I have to wait over night at the aiport for 17 hours because the check out lady wouldn't give me 1 minute to speak to her well before check in would've been closed because she was too busy in a hurry and extremely rude!"
Cons: "Paying for everything. Only 2 toilets for entire economy section"
Pros: "We fly a lot, over 20 flights last year. I was very disappointed in this flight. No water was offered during the entire flight (2 and 1/2 hrs). We had to track down a steward to buy a bottle of water and some lunch. At checkin I was told my new suitcase, a Travel pro carryon was too big to take on. As we boarded I saw many people with bigger carryons. Who makes these rules so inconsistently? On the positive side, we had very comfortable seats, but I did pay extra for them!!"
Cons: "The landing was horrible. Skidded and rough, glad to get off this plane. Not sure I will fly BA again."
Pros: "The flight got us there safely."
Cons: "The security area was crowded and loud with a man shouting instructions you could barely hear. No one was helpful. No one was there to answer questions. An extremely unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Good service and refreshments all the way from excellent crew"
Cons: "Old jumbo has poor screen and very limited entertainment compared with modern planes"
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."
Pros: "Efficient check in and boarding. And friendly staff."
Pros: "The crew were quite friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and check-in could have been more organized"
Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "The temperature was annoyingly hot on board."
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "Got to Hong Kong alive..."
Cons: "Got downgraded from full-fare business to premium economy; then they lost my luggage (my travel companion also got food poisoning)"
Cons: "general boarding en mass.prefer orderly by "zone" boarding"
Cons: "I tried to reserve my seat and do a 24 hr advance check-in - no luck. I was in the airport in Munich at 9am, could not get a boarding pass for the London-Boston leg and asked to have an isle seat reserved - no such luck!! I was squeezed in on a window seat in a row of 3. Try to get up when the 2 people in your row are deep asleep! I was disappointed that they did not honor my request, which was made online and supposedly held in the booking system. Heathrow is another story - terrible airport, no decent food. Oh, and BA even charges for water on the European flights. How low can you go?"
Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."
Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient and caring. A comfortable experience at a very low price."
Pros: "This is how a flight sould be lots of leg room the seat went back ,the flight was from Heathrow unlike other airlines that fly from the worst airport I have ever been to that's Luton"
Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Pros: "The pilot was very great, on time, and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "We left on a flight from London over 12 hours later."
Pros: "It made it."
Cons: "Once were on board our pilot informed us there would be a 1 hour hold time by the tower. After 20 minutes, things changed and we left. We arrived late, but it was Terminal 3 to Terminal 3. Fast right? Nope. Walked for days and then we got to go through security again. Arrived to gate. More of room with in access, but no out access. Good thing there were bathrooms in there - oh no wait - there weren't. Good long wait with kids before we could board."
Pros: "Flight from Venice to philly was good besides the fact it was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay"
